IWEA’s Annual Wastewater Challenge is a fun, educational experience for anyone involved in the wastewater industry. This event provides an opportunity to apply day-to-day skills through a series of hands-on activities and written quizzes.
Five committees – Laboratory, Operations & Maintenance, Residuals & Resource Recovery, Collection Systems, and Safety – create challenges in their respective fields. Teams consisting of four people from either the same facility or from several facilities compete against each other by following instructions for each challenge. Teams who have members from different disciplines in the industry have an advantage over those who don’t.
The winning team for the Indiana event gets an expenses-paid trip to compete at the Operations Challenge at WEFTEC in Chicago in September!
ARE YOU A CONSULTANT, ENGINEER, SUPPLIER OR CONTRACTOR?
We would love for you to consider forming a team with someone from your company along with municipal and utility clients or other industry friends to participate in the activities at the event! It’s an excellent learning opportunity, a great way to spend time with clients and it’s a really fun day. Last year, our Board put together a team that consisted of an engineer, an operator, a CPA, and a contractor and had an absolute blast – and everyone learned a little something, too! The best part is that not everyone on the team has to be from the same company or the same utility. Get creative with your team members and pick and choose individuals from different municipalities or utilities who would perform well in the different categories to boost your advantage if you’re participating competitively and to provide those clients an opportunity which they would otherwise not have.
Please register no later than May 7th. If you have any questions please contact Kylee Daily.
